When a mother weaves a story of herself, and more often her child, it always reflects the insecurities of the mother, hoping if others believe something is true, they can escape discomfort and maybe even make it reality.
Motherhood branding looks like:
This is not to judge (we’ve all been there and still go there, if only in temptation to brand), but encouragement. Let’s be more aware. Because how positive is it for our children when we create a PR campaign around who they are? When we face our insecurities, get comfortable with our fears and support other mums our kids will only benefit. It's here, in our work on our discomfort, that we gift our children acceptance and allow them the space to be comfortable in who they are.
